Hey, My memory seems to fail me , did Alligator have a Stratoblaster? If so was it installed for the whole time that Garcia used that guitar? I was wondering if anyone has a clone and some sound clips. I would like to hear the difference the Stratoblaster makes. Thanks, Paul

The Stratoblaster was added sometime in March 72... so compare anything from Summer 71 until then against the Europe 72 tour to hear the difference the Balster makes.

Thanks RR, I will definetly do that. Right now I use a MXR Micro amp for unity gain and sometimes a boost with my '78 Greco strat. I love the '73 sound of alligator, wish I could nail it. ,Paul
